A Success Story
Diono, a Seattle-based manufacturer of car seats, convertible/boosters & travel accessories, struggled with an inability to consistently forecast sales at product and customer level and complete operational forecasting at the entity and cost center level.
After partnering with KPI, Diono implemented a sales plan via PBCS that provides detailed planning of revenue at the item level and customer level, pulling actual data from the SAP Accounts Receivable module. Users and analysts now have detailed, reliable information for improved planning by:
- Unit forecasting by Item Level detail by Customer
- Price forecasting by Item Level detail by Customer utilizing unique Pricing Tables
- Analytics on Products and Customer
